FAWM Song – it’s over now

in this time / i do define / the greatness that / is unlike me / no one else / has been denied / the fact that / it’s over now

the end has come / and with it we / are all going to die / it’s much too late / to go back now / and make amends

it’s over now and we’ve taken / a blow to the brain, one we all can’t survive / it’s over now and it’s too late / to save us all…

in this time / i do define / the greatness that / is unlike me / no one else / has been denied / the fact that / it’s over now

it’s over now and we’ve taken / a blow to the brain, one we all can’t survive / it’s over now and it’s too late / to save us all…

it’s over now / we are waiting for the end to come / it’s too late to save ourselves / it’s time to let it all go and float away / it’s over now / there’s no way that we can survive this / how can we go on like this / we failed the world and now it’s turning it’s back on us all…

in this time / i do define / the greatness that / is unlike me / no one else / has been denied / the fact that / it’s over now

they say that / love can save / but all it did / was destroy us / where is your god now / He is pouring out His righteous wrath upon us all…

it’s over now / we are waiting for the end to come / it’s too late to save ourselves / it’s time to let it all go and float away / it’s over now / there’s no way that we can survive this / how can we go on like this / we failed the world and now it’s turning it’s back on us all…

it’s over now / we are waiting for the end to come / it’s too late to save ourselves / it’s time to let it all go and float away / it’s over now / there’s no way that we can survive this / how can we go on like this / we failed the world and now it’s turning it’s back on us all…

One thought on “FAWM Song – it’s over now

  1. I enjoyed reading It’s Over Now, even though it speaks of tragic consequences, because we “failed the world and now it’s turning its back on us all…” I have felt these uncertain, miserable, and shame-filled emotions myself, as seen in my poem Who Shall Save Me.
    At the time, I was depending on the world to define my greatness, and I found that the world caused me to “define the greatness that is unlike me.” In other words, I felt that “My worth is but dust under the foot of man.” The world (including me) will never love us the way God does, because we choose not to face reality, which causes us to deny that we love ourselves too much, and our expectations of others are not what God intended. However, when we love God more than anything or anyone in the world, we are able to see others through His eyes. After putting God before all else, and reading the historical reality of humanity, we realize that He could have “poured out His righteous wrath upon us all…” from the time of the Great Flood, and yet chose not to. Instead, He gave us the choice to follow Him and live ever after, or suffer the consequences. We feel His love, grace, and truth when we accept Him through faith, and faith alone.
    I pray that each person reading our poetic conversation/song; will understand that although we “failed the world and now it’s turning its back on us all…,” God “desires all men (mankind) to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4 New American Standard Bible).
    Blessings,
